LEGO to Showcase New Batmobile at SD Comic-Con
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice won’t be out until March 23, 2016, but playing with the new LEGO Batmobile could make time run faster, for some.
Batman standing right next to his newly redesigned Batmobile was one of the first images with Ben Affleck as the Caped Crusader. In that context, it makes perfect sense for LEGO to promote the new Batmobile in a similar way.
The new Batmobile “includes 306 pieces, two stud shooters and opening doors, a new Batman outfit deco, two additional unnamed characters and an additional vehicle,” reports The Wall Street Journal.
You’re free to think of the new Batmobile as the LEGO equivalent of a movie’s trailer. You’ll get to see it at Comic-Con, in San Diego, but you won’t get to fully enjoy it until January 1, 2016, when Batman’s badass vehicle will hit the shelves, bearing a price tag of $29.99.
It’ll be interesting to see who the two unnamed characters are, but I’d go out on a limb and say that one’s Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel, and the other one is Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor. There are several other options, considering that these two are not the only superheroes to star in Dawn of Justice, and Luthor definitely won’t be the only villain.
If you ask me, I think that the new Batmobile is only the beginning. LEGO wouldn’t (and shouldn’t) miss such an opportunity to refresh its product line, so there are great chances that we’ll also get to see something from Superman’s environment, and maybe even something related to the villains. Or was Superman the villain? We’ll just have to wait until July 9, when the Danish company will unveil Dark Knight’s new ride at San Diego Comic-Con International.
I’m going to be frank with you and say that The Dark Knight Rises was a joke of a movie, not only because of the story and Bane’s ridiculous voice, but also because of how the scenes were edited, and how Inception-esque the soundtrack sounded. That being said, I have high hopes for Zack Snyder’s new movie. Snyder has already directed several adaptations of comics for the big screen, and even though he wasn’t involved in writing the script (as was the case with the Nolan brothers), some people seem to trust the faith of the Justice League and Suicide Squad into his hands.
